The Word ‘Spirituality’ Means Different Things To Different People
When I ask Denise for a definition, she answers honestly: “you’re kidding, right?” Personally, I have no problems admitting that I’ve always been interested in the spiritual space and wondered whether my ‘gut instinct’ or ‘that feeling I have about x’ is more than just coincidence.
So in my books, anyone who describes herself as “a no bullshit clairvoyant who teaches others to use their psychic superpowers,” has my instant attention. And if you happen to gravitate towards Denise’s blog, you’ll soon be hit by numerous topics of intrigue including, “do you have psychic constipation?” and “there are no magic beans.”
To Understand Denise’s Journey…
We need to backtrack to her early years as a confused young woman who converted to Scientology.
“I was 18-years-old and was living in an emotionally unstable house. I yearned for answers and a place to be recognised. Like any cult, young and confused people are drawn into it thinking it’s going to be better than what they’re getting at home,” she says.
As misguided as that time in her life may have been, Denise admits it taught her many important lessons such as her understanding of pole (her deriving force).
“I learned to be a counselor and I continue to use these skills daily in the work that I do as a clairvoyant and in readings where I connect loved ones in Spirit to those who have left them behind.”
Denise says it was the double standards that eventually drove her away from Scientology for good.
“Double standards together with their collective homophobia really jaded me. I was lucky because this all happened during a time when mobile phones didn’t exist. This meant I was able to hide and one day, I simply walked out and never went back.”
While Some May Refer To What Denise Does As “A Gift’…
That a select few have, she disagrees.
“Everyone has these abilities. Some just notice it more and some are willing to train and hone their skills further.”
A huge part of what makes Denise tick is her dedication to helping others to “come out of the broom closet” (her own words). She talks openly about her experience as a child in hiding her abilities because she didn’t live in a safe place and learned “to shut up quickly.”
“Thankfully, it’s a lot easier these days and I run a Facebook community that helps others to both discover and use their abilities.”
Denise Says That People’s Thirst and Hunger For Spirituality Continues To Grow
Their willingness to question whether there is anything more is really just the start of that all-important spark awakening.
“There is a noticeable rise in the emptiness and isolation thanks to the digital world. On the flip side, the digital world also has the capacity to bring us together so we live in very interesting times.”
